    I'm trying to sync my game progress from iPhone to iPad air, specicifically the Real Racing 3. I would like my game progress from iPhone to show up on iPad, and I'm having difficulty, can you tell me how to do it, if it's possible? thanks

    Backup your iPhone and restore the backup to your iPad.

    I did a back up on iPhone through iCloud but I don't see any restore option on the iPad under iCloud, should I be looking somewhere in the settings?

    You'll have to erase all content and settings to restore from a backup. There's no other way to get this information to your iPad.

    Ok thanks, not sure if it's worth doing that just for one game. Well at least I learned something new.

    I'm not familiar with the game. What you should look for is whether it has Game Center support, or perhaps FaceBook. If it does, make sure you sign in with the same account on both devices. In Game Center's case you'll need to be signed in under Game Center, and turn on the feature in the game itself. In FaceBook's case, you sign in with your account in the game.

    Not all games offer Game Center support, and even the ones that do may not offer all the supported features, so even if these are available there is no guarantee it will retroactively sync the games. But it might.

    It shows up in the Game Center. I deleted and reinstalled it many times but keep restoring what saves in cloud saves, but not the progress from the iPhone. I'll just leave it alone and play it on my iPhone, not worth the hassle. Other games have ported between devices through Icloud, not understanding why this one doesn't.

    You could visit the developer's page and see if they've got a support of feedback link.

    I deleted the app, kept on crashing on the iPhone. But still would like to find out why other games ported between devices in the Game Center and some don't, but saves the progress individually, apps are exactly the same.
